Having always been a fan of stove top cooked oatmeal, but never liking the cleaning of the pan, I decided to simplify my morning by halving this recipe. I'm so glad this was the recipe I tried first. It's easy to make and easy to fix and tastes really good. I'll be making full batches from now on and will be trying different fruits and nuts in it.

I have made several batches this winter. I try to use different dried fruits. I don't like the banana chips, but use crazins, apricots diced, dates, walnuts. If you have your own dried bananas or apples that would really be good also. I don't like the ones from the store. I also use splenda and cut the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons. Have used nutmeg with the cinnamon. I also use half Old Fashioned oats and half Quick Cooking Oats.

I used the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and made a dried cranberry/walnut version. In the future I plan to make a dried blueberry/pecan and dried cherry/almond versions. Easy to prepare and quick, healthy start to the day!

That is the greatest oatmeal mix that I have ever used. I did omit the apples & babana chips & used chopped walnuts.I make myself a bowl every morning. Yummmmm!!!!!!!!

What a great way to save money if your family likes the instant stuff. This is every bit as sweet as it too. I always find the instant packaged stuff too sweet, so next time I think I'll put in a little less sugar.

This is delicious! Our family prefers old fashioned oatmeal, so I substituted it and cook for 3 minutes. So handy to have available, we eat oatmeal every morning, and this simplifies it. We never cared for instant oatmeals, too mushy.
